Pile of gold coins

Mama’s Gift

Oscar is not the type of person that goes on adventures. He has lived in a tiny apartment above a cafe for thirty years since leaving home at 19. He has never been married, never owned a pet and only buys clothes out of necessity. His wardrobe consists of 4 colours – blue, brown, black and grey. He refuses to go to the barber insisting on using his clippers at home with the number 3 comb to cut his hair once a month. For 365 days a year, Oscar eats oats for breakfast. He even has a schedule for TV, leisure, errands, and bedtime every day. This is how Oscar likes it. He knows exactly how his day will go and he doesn’t like surprises.
